I Feel Pretty | Chambray, Pink and Whales

I Feel Pretty | Chambray, Pink and Whales

My style goal this summer was to break out of the daily summer rut of my typical tank top, shorts and flip flops.  It may not sound that hard but it has been.  Mainly because it’s HOT in Texas so that severely limits my options, especially when it comes to layering.

So when I paired up this outfit wearing my favorite chambray, a bubblegum pink tank and my embroidered whale shorts, I was pretty excited.  The layers are light enough to work even on a hot day and let’s talk about these shorts for a second.  I may have squealed with delight (and embarrassed my daughter) when I found them at Marshall’s.  They are just so darn cute!  Every time I wear them, I get compliments from strangers.  (You can find some similar pairs here and here.)

Summer Style | Better Together

Summer Style | Better Together

Hot dogs and ketchup, iced tea and porch swings, bare feet and green grass.

Some things in summer are just better together.

Like a fedora and floral shorts.

Do you want to know what else is better together?

Tide, Downy and Bounce.

Tide Downy Bounce

Since I started using all three products together, our family’s laundry is clean, soft and smells so fresh.  Tide is better at getting out stains and keeping our clothes their cleanest than any other detergent brand I’ve ever used.  Downy keeps everything feeling soft and comfortable against our skin.  Bounce makes our laundry smell outdoor fresh right out of the dryer and reduces static cling.

It’s a magical trio for laundry perfection!  Or at least my family thinks so.  🙂
